Financial Aid

Q: When should we apply for scholarships?

A: Incoming freshmen or transfer students are automatically assessed for merit-based scholarships. Once a Flagler GPA has been established, continuing Flagler students are encouraged to apply each February for named Flagler College scholarships. Email reminders are sent to students to apply. Named scholarships are especially meaningful because they are established by individuals who care deeply about Flagler College and its students. Please note that students who are eligible for Flagler College Grants may also be eligible to receive a named scholarship; however, a named scholarship may not change the total amount of financial aid awarded. The funds awarded through named scholarships can replace some or all of the amount of any Flagler College Grant on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

Q: Who should we talk to about our financial aid packages?

A: Your Financial Aid Counselor. Counselors are assigned by your last name. Please visit our Meet Your Financial Aid Counselor page to determine your Financial Aid Counselor.

A new FAFSA must be completed for each academic year. The FAFSA opens on October 1 and can be completed online at https://fafsa.gov.

Q: Why do my parents have to turn in tax documents?

A: When students are selected by the federal government for review in a process called verification, the college is required to verify that the information on their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application matches their income tax, financial, and other household information. For more information: https://studentaid.gov/apply-for-aid/fafsa/review-and-correct

Q: How do I know if I’ve done everything I need to do?

A: To make sure your financial aid documents are complete, check your “Documents” by signing in to your Financial Aid Account at https://financialaid.flagler.edu/.

Q: How do I apply for federal student loans?

A: First, complete the FAFSA. After being offered a loan, accept it in your student portal, complete a loan agreement (Mastery Promissory Note), and complete Entrance Counseling. You only need to do the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling once.

TIP: Keep track of your loans, only borrow what you need, make a plan for how you will repay these loans when you graduate, and visit the Office of Financial Aid for one-on-one help.

Q: What happens to my financial aid if I need to withdraw from school?

A: Meet with your Financial Aid Counselor to ensure you are informed before making any decisions that could impact your financial aid.

Q: How do I repay my loans?

A: For most federal student loans, repayment begins when you leave college or drop below half-time enrollment. For PLUS loans, repayment begins when the loan is fully disbursed. Prior to repayment, monthly interest payments on your loans will reduce the overall amount to repay over the life of the loan. Federal student loans have a loan servicer to handle billing and other services. To find yours, visit studentaid.gov. After identifying your servicer, visit their website to make a loan payment. For private loans, contact your lender for repayment details. More information: https://studentaid.gov/h/manage-loans

Learning Resource Center

Q: What time does the LRC open/close?

A: The Learning Resource Center’s hours are

  • Sunday: 5 p.m.-9 p.m.
  • Monday-Thursday: 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

To make an appointment, check specific lab hours, or learn more about their services visit www.flagler.edu/lrc.

Q: Do I need to make an appointment to see a tutor?

A: We encourage it, but you are not required to do so.  To make an appointment, visit www.flagler.edu/LRC and click the “Make an appointment with a tutor” button. Otherwise, you can feel free to walk in and be seen on a space-available basis. Making an appointment means that you won’t have to wait for a tutor, and we encourage appointments during busy times of the year like midterms and December.

Q: What does it cost to see a tutor?

A: There is no cost; it is included in your tuition.

Q: Is there a limit on how often you can see a tutor?

A. We usually limit students to three visits per week, which is usually more than enough. If you need to work with a tutor more than that, there are lab courses in which we can enroll you, like ENG 010, ENG 020, REA 010, and MAT 010. Taking these one-hour add-on courses means that you will have a dedicated, weekly one-on-one meeting with a tutor without the need to make an appointment. If you are interested in adding one of these courses to your schedule, you can speak with the LRC Director or by emailing learning@flagler.edu.

Q: How do I become a tutor?

A: Generally speaking, you will need a recommendation from a faculty member who teaches the subject you wish to tutor, at least an A- average in that subject, and an overall GPA of 3.25 or higher.  All potential tutors must also complete either apprentice training or take a one-hour tutor training course. It is best to begin by contacting the lab coordinator for whom you want to tutor to discover the specific steps for your program.

Q: How will my instructor know that I used the LRC?

After every tutoring session, the tutor creates a “visit note” that describes what happened during your session. Things like what stage you are at with the assignment, whether you reviewed any instructor feedback, your level of engagement in the session, and how long you worked (among others) are typically included in this note. Instructors receive them every Saturday by 10:00 p.m. through an automatic process. Many instructors require a visit to the LRC, while some offer extra credit. These visit notes provide proof of your visit.

Q: How long are tutoring sessions?

A: The default session is 30 minutes, but you needn’t take that long. Some sessions are as short as five minutes, while others can stretch to an hour. We ask that if you need more than an hour that you make an appointment for another time and return later to pick up where you left off. Tutors will not work with the same student for more than one hour at a time. 

Q: What happens if I miss an appointment with a tutor?

A: The first time you miss an appointment with a tutor, you receive a warning email letting you know that you missed the appointment. The second time you miss an appointment, you are blocked for the term from making any more appointments online. Instead, you will have to call the LRC front desk to make an appointment (904-826-8548).

Q: How do I cancel an appointment with a tutor?

A: Simply follow the link in your appointment confirmation or reminder email to cancel the appointment. Canceling the appointment means that the tutor will be available to help other students. If you cancel more than three appointments in any one-week period, you will be blocked.

Q: What is FERPA?

A: The College enforces the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974. FERPA, as it applies to institutions of higher learning, ensures that students have access to certain records that pertain to them. It prohibits others, except faculty members or administrators who have “a need to know” and parents who claim their student as a dependent for tax purposes, from access to the student’s records, unless the student signs a waiver. FERPA forms are used to allow parents, guardians, other significant persons in a student’s life to have permission to speak to the various departments on campus. A student must submit a FERPA form on their own accord and in front of a Registrar office employee or bring in the form with an official notary stamp, date and signature.
